LONDON — Serena Williams just can’t seem to get over the hump anymore and she’s not getting any younger. With a chance to tie Margaret Court’s all-time Grand Slam record, the 37-year-old tennis star took it on the chin; losing to Simona Halep in straight sets during Saturday’s Wimbledon final. Serena has 23 Grand Slam triumphs, just one short of Margaret’s superhuman procurement. But she’s also lost three straight Grand Slams. Saturday’s contest was void of dubiety. Simona, who’s from Romania, whupped Serena’s ass; winning 6-2, 6-2 in less than an hour. Prior to the match, tennis great Billie Jean King questioned Serena’s priorities.

“She’s got business, a baby, she’s trying to help gender equity, particularly for women of color,” Billie told the Metro. “She’s actually on the Billie Jean King leadership initiative, she and Venus are both advisors for it (which makes winning a Slam much harder). I would like to see her put everything else aside from that.”

“She’s got people working on these things,” Billie continued. “I wish she would just make a commitment for the next year-and-a-half to two years and just say, ‘I’m going to absolutely devote what’s necessary for my tennis [career] so when I look in the mirror when I’m older that I can go back in my mind and know I gave everything I had and be happy.’ But if she’s happy doing it this way it’s fine. It’s not about us.”

When asked if she should focus more on tennis, a pissed off Serena articulated a poignant communiqué. “The day I stop fighting for equality … will be the day I’m in my grave,” she said before standing up and walking away from her press conference.

Do you agree with Billie?

Is Serena too distracted?

Is she getting too old?

  1. Serena Williams NEEDS TO LAY OFF THE TESTOSTERONE INJECTIONS

  2. Serena didnt even show up. Performance anxiety these last 3 finals. You hate to see it

  3. Beaten in under 1 hour in a Final. Nice work Serena. Last year’s Final was a work of art as well. Next year Serena will face a 15yo in the Final and get bageled.

  4. Simona wasn’t playing with you all today!!! Congratulations Halep.

  5. So ready for this beast to retire. My family were long time fans until her loss to Osaka. Zero class. And did I say steroid beast? Yuck

  6. Joe Frazier's Left Hook

    Never forget Simona Halep paid the ultimate sacrifice to be a tennis champion by undergoing breast reduction surgery at age 17 in 2009. As a teenager her 34DD prevented her from playing her best tennis.

  7. Serena deserved to lose. First: because she is such a bad loser without any fairness. Second, because she is too heavy and slow. She cannot run anymore as Halep did. Serena could win only 4 games against the 12 Halep won. That says everything about the quality of the two players. Serena does not have any strategy, because she lacks some intelligence. She can only hit hard. But that was not enough against Halep.

  8. I am delighted that Simona won. Great job!

  9. Beauty and the beast, happy Simona slayed her

  10. Congrats Simon you are a true champ.Glad you beat the media darling lefty.The DNC media will blame Trump and claim it was racist she lost.

  18. Bootlickersports

    Wow she beat a 37 year old Serena, if this was 5 years ago it be 6-0-6-0 serena, as if Serena even cares anymore after dozens of slams. Halep is ok not that good, Serena is the GOAT, the best classiest tennis player of all time, call me when Halep wins another slam in what will probably be in about 7 years………

  19. The old fat racist dude in white dress looks like a tired old ho now doesn’t he?
